Widow of Armed Forces Captain, killed in unclear circumstances, calls for Inquiry

The widow of a British serviceman who was run over and killed by a forklift truck, driven by an American soldier, is to meet the US ambassador and request an independent inquiry into his death.

Linda Sprouting, from Denny near Falkirk, Scotland, told Sky News she felt the circumstances surrounding her husband’s death were “uncertain” in spite of an inquest finding that his death was “accidental”.
